We were really worried about my husband being changed from DLA to PIP. It took forever. We received the letter in July and returned the form almost immediately. Lousy GP refused to help. Interview was October 4th. The decision came thru in late November. He's been upped to enhanced daily living. Keeps the enhanced movilify and therefore the mutability car and the award is for 10 years. DLA finishes 17th December. PIP starts 18th December. It's been a nightmare bit all came good. Now I'm in the middle of as I've been diagnosed with MS. Not as worried as anything I get will be extra and I have lots of support from MS nurse and neurologist etc. Hope everyone else has had positive results too

    Hi Jeanette.

    Great to hear your hubby got the full award. Just got mine too, after great anxiety going from DLA to PIP. What a relief!

    Sad to read about your diagnosis.

    I was wrongly diagnosed with PPMS for several years so do know a bit about it.

    Hope you are receiving all the help you need.

    lots of love Pollyxxx

    Thank you Polly. I have great support and have had for possibly 20-25 years. Also have 2 new active lesions on my brain I have PPMS. Rather a shock when I thought it was a trapped nerve. More so when they found a tomour in my lung. But they've cut that and half my lung out so onwards and upwards ☺
